VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ and ‘Hit the Floor’ Finish Big

Ratings for VH1’s “Hit the Floor” went through the roof on Monday as the cheerleader drama wrapped its rookie season with best-yet scores. It held onto a good chunk of its lead-in from the strong “Love & Hip Atlanta 2,” summer’s top cable series in young adults.

The already-renewed “Hit the Floor” is neck and neck with USA’s “Graceland” as the summer’s top new scripted series on cable in adults 18-49, but its real strength lies in the young-female demos. In women 18-34, its 2.8 rating/8 share was a competitive second to ABC’s “The Bachelorette” (3.4/10) on all of television for Monday.
